I have a friend who is Jewish and quite comfortable in believing that Yeshua of Nazareth is the promised Messiah. This makes sense to me considering that the thousands of years of Messianic hope should have been fulfilled in at least someone. One thing that I don't get is why Jews who accept Christ are ostrisized from their community. God made a promise and as a Jew, one feels compelled to expect the fulfillment of that promise. I don't see anything wrong with that.
